3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at brewery. Not a lot of head but a big mean black beer. Big roasted nose with licorice and charcoal. Slight sweetness from chocolate, slight bitterness to balance. Oily and full on the tongue. Enough of an alcohol burn to add some needed warmth (esp. in Ashland!). Their best beer on this day.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beer pours black with a tan colored head that slowly dissipates. Aroma is pretty nice with coffee and lots of roastiness. Flavor is a bit thin compared to the aroma. Light flavors of coffee. The finish comes late but is big on roasted flavors. Finishes well. Not the greatest stout ever, but one I would be really happy to buy if it was brewed down the street from me here in Texas. Thanks Tom!!! Improves as it warms.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a rich oily opaque with a thin tan head. Aroma is lightly caramely sweet and very roasty with hints of dark fruit complexity. Body starts robust and silky with a nice malty sweetness before a bittersweet, mildly dry, roasted finish. Very nice for a regular stout. A little more malt and this could be imperial.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Stout Night!!! Starting with this beer courtesy of JPDIPSO. Lots of coffee flavor, bitter, malty, well balanced beer. Smooth and drinkable, black like volcanic glass, this is a solid Stout. A little thin but excellent in the mixture.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle-purchased at woodmans in Madison, WI-pours a deep brown hue witha small off-white head. looks more like a porter than a stout. butterscotch and coffee aroma-flavors of burnt coffee, roast and char-very burnt tasting. light body and thin palate detract from the overall rating of this beer. A good session stout for those cold winters in Northern WI.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet cherry cola type of aroma, sharp cherry chocolatefirst taste, very sweet malt aftertaste, not very smooth. Seemed more like a sweet stout. Would buy it again
